Ancient Arts of Madagascar (N° 19490)

This book is the first to pay a deserved tribute to the richness and diversity of Madagascar's traditional artistic production. In all fields, from life here below to the afterlife, passing through an in-between dedicated to magic and divination, Malagasy artists have expressed their imagination and know-how. Sometimes the sculptors' creations are unique and unusual, in the image of their incomparable island, sometimes they draw their inspiration from the Austronesian, African, Indian or Arab populations that winds and favorable currents have carried, over the centuries, to this land of encounters. Whether they are everyday objects, magical charms or funerary statues, these works have aroused great interest among the first European observers, whose written or iconographic testimonies serve as a guiding thread for this publication.
A long work of research in public and private collections around the world has brought together the most representative and most aesthetic paintings and sculptures of this hitherto little celebrated culture. The choice of an exceptional format gives this book the necessary space for the magnificent pictures of famous photographers who contribute to reveal the beauty of these works of art.
